Feedback and Complaint Handling Process

You can take the following steps if you would like to follow-up on a particular matter.

  1. Please first speak to the person the complaint is about. If a resolution is not possible, please ask to speak to the manager of the program or office.
  2. If you are still not satisfied in the handling of the complaint, please complete either the Feedback Form or the Complaints Form and forward to Lutheran Care at the address below.

    Feedback Form

    Complaint Form

    Lutheran Care
    PO Box 1020
    Prospect East SA 5082

    Or email to: feedback@lutherancare.org.au

  3. Once the organisation receives your form it will be sent to the relevant Executive Manager. You should receive an acknowledgement letter within 48 hours. Depending on the urgency of the feedback, you may receive a telephone call or email.

    If the feedback contains a suggestion or compliment, it will be confidentially forwarded to the respective manager for their information.

    If the feedback contains a complaint, it may require further investigation. In this case a decision should be made within 28 days of receiving the feedback form and a Complaint Finalisation Letter will be sent to you. If a decision is not made within 28 days, you will be notified of the delay via a Complaint Status Letter.

    All feedback and complaints received are completely confidential.

  4. If you feel your matter is not resolved satisfactorily, please ask to raise your concerns with the relevant Executive Manager.

    If you are still not satisfied with the outcome, a complaint can be made to the relevant funding body and/or the following organisations:
